Jeff Lane is an intelligent, multi-genre songwriter, gaining recognition for his melodic and soulful material. His compositions are most notably the perfect backdrop for film & television. With his expressive and poignant lyrics, Jeff works with some of the best male and female vocalist to deliver the true essence of his music.
Born and raised in New York, living in Los Angeles, Jeff's life changed when he first heard The Beatles, 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'. "That song changed the world for me", he explains. "My parents bought me a cheap ZimGar guitar in the summer of 1964. And after seeing 'A Hard Days Night' (three times on that day), almost everybody in the neighborhood was in a 'band' playing an instrument of some sort."
Shades of artists and writers like The Beatles, Otis Reading, Billy Joel, Cole Porter, through to today's Bruno Mars and the like, can be respectfully heard throughout some of Jeff's songwriting. Jeff is one of those gifted writers who can explore a multitude of musical genres; and with a repertoire of R&B, Latin, Country and Pop, each of the songs resonate in a special way, leading to a multitude of licensing opportunities in film & television worldwide.
Songwriting is the road Jeff Lane has been traveling for most of his life – driven by pure passion and the love for his trade, when asked "what does music bring to your life both as a writer and a listener?" Jeff replies… "As a writer, music is the way I express some of my deeply buried emotions I suppose. But as a listener, I would have to turn the question around and ask – can you imagine a world without music?"
